Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara approaches Real Madrid

Real Madrid have been offered Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara.

Real coach Julen Lopetegui would like another signing to be added before Friday's transfer deadline, though president Florentino Perez favours a striker addition.

Don Balon says Thiago has been in contact with his former Spain coach and made it clear he wants to leave Bayern this week.

Lopetegui is keen and has urged Florentino to move for the midfielder. But the president wants to prioritise a striker signing in the coming days.

For his part, Thiago's agents are also in contact with Florentino, urging him to bid for the player.
